In this Cyberpunk 2077 Save Editor tutorial, I’ll explain what you can and can’t do to make your life easier in the Night City.

A while back, I created a beginner’s tutorial for modding Cyberpunk using Cyber Engine Tweak (CET). While it’s quite user-friendly for beginners like myself, there are limitations and caveats to consider regarding how CET operates within Cyberpunk 2077.

For instance, you can increase your favorite gun’s magazine size with CET, but it reduces the gun’s DPS proportionally to the magazine size. Curiously, the larger the magazine, the lower the DPS. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. Haha…

In another attempt, I tried to make the “Like a Feather” perk function with all guns, not just Shotguns, LMGs, and HMGs as in the vanilla version. Unfortunately, my limited coding and modding knowledge prevented me from achieving this.

Yet, I discovered I could eliminate the movement speed penalty for my V using the Save Editor, effectively achieving my original purpose. I’ll delve into this shortly.

Another benefit of using the Save Editor instead of mods is its independence from mod dependencies (like Redscript, TweakXL, RED4ext, etc.), making it less prone to breaking when the game updates.

You could download the Save Editor (Project CyberCAT-SimpleGUI) on the Nexus or its GitHub page.

Without further ado, let’s dive in.

## Don’t Do It: Modifying Quest Facts with Save Editor for Cyberpunk 2077

Before we explore cheating stats, let’s address a crucial point—modifying quest facts using the Save Editor. It’s a frequently asked question across the community and strongly advised against due to potential quest chain disruptions or unintended outcomes, especially at the time of this writing.

Why? Here’s my hypothesis: When you make a decision during a quest, such as letting an NPC die, the game logs multiple quest facts. Editing just one fact to alter an NPC’s condition might conflict with other unaltered quest facts, disrupting the quest chain.

Avoid this unless solely for testing purposes. The only Quest Fact that I’ve read working as intended by changing it via the Save Editor is unlocking the Secret Ending. However, I’ve not tested it myself, so do it at your own risk if you want to try it out.

## Let’s Do It: Cheating the Game with Cyberpunk 2077 Save Editor

With that cautionary note, let’s focus on why we’re here.

There are indeed many things that you can do using the Cyberpunk 2077 Save Editor. However, I think most of them are straightforward and you don’t need a tutorial for that.

For me, what’s more important is the list of Additional Stats that you can add using the Save Editor. I’ll create two tables for the list of Stats: one for the Player Stats and another for the Weapon Stats.

In case you aren’t familiar with adding Additional Stats to your character (V) or your weapons, here’s how you can do it:

To add Additional Stats to your character (V), navigate to the Player Stats tab (the first tab) in the Save Editor. Then, click the “Edit Additional Stats” button in the center, and it will open a new window where you can click the “+ New Constant.”

On the other hand, if you wish to modify your weapons, head to the Inventory tab. Here, you’ll find all items in V’s inventory and Car Stash. Check the list at the top right of the window to switch between the Inventory and the Stash.

Locate the weapon you want to modify and double-click it. Note that the weapon name displayed here might differ from the actual in-game name. If you need to find the ID of the weapon you want to modify, you can download the Categorized All-In-One Command List and check the WEAPONS tab in the Excel file.

Always back up your save files before making any changes to avoid losing progress. The save file directory on my PC is “C:\Users\yabes\Saved Games\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077.” Adjust the username accordingly.

Keep in mind that the list might not cover all addable Stats—only those I’ve personally tested. Some stats remain unverified, and I’ll note these accordingly. I might update the list if I discover more stats, provided I’m not feeling too lazy (LOL).

## Player Stats

This is the table for Player Additional Stats. You can play around with the Values. Check the notes for some of the Stats/In-Game Effects. You could also use the same method for similar stats that enable additional In-Game Effect.

## Closing

Once again, the tables above don’t contain all the Stats. You could experiment yourself with other Stats if you want. There is no harm in doing that. Just don’t forget to backup your save file. So, have fun!
